KastKing Corrosion Resistance High Strength LMA200 10+1 BB 6.3:1 Aluminum Spool Baitcasting Fishing Reel For Anglers

  • 10+1 High Quality Ball Bearings and quick and easy removable side cover and spool, makes maintenance and cleaning simple and covenant
  • Two-toned CNC Machined Aluminum Spool that offers maximum strength with less weight and an ultra-smooth Guide Bar System gives the line a smooth and even lay
  • The ceramic insert line guide means no line damage on any line type: Braid, monofilament, or fluorocarbon
  • Reliable Magnetic Braking System with a convenient external adjustable multi-level cast control, allowing for smooth and accurate casts without having to remove the side cover
  • Light weight and low profile design that fits comfortably in your hand, reduces fatigue allowing the angler to keep fishing all day long
we checked out this reel today. I put it on my ugly stick pole and it fit perfectly. I only had 6 lb monofilament line, which I used with a little fishing lure. It was an easy set up and the reel works smoothly. The problem I had was it was windy, I did not have enough weight on the line and I cast the line wrong. I got a horrible birds nest and it took me five minutes to fix it. The good thing was after I fished it, the reel still worked perfectly and smoothly. I would use this reel for freshwater. It's small and perfect for my eleven year old son. I will change the line to something easier to cast and put a lure and sinker that would make it easier for him to cast. This is a great learning reel that is even good for your avid fisherman. The only line I had just didn't work on a hot, windy, Florida day.

We had the chance to try out this saltwater travel spinning fishing rod. It is easy to set up and easy to break down again. Make sure you spray all the salt water off it because there is some medal that the sea would love to eat away. I put my larger reel on this fishing pole and the set up was quick and easy. Because this pole is so large, it took me a little bit of time to cast it correctly, but I learned in minutes. We made videos for YouTube and Amazon. I have a lake in my backyard and it was fun practice casting. I had a blast. The pole is large, but it is very easy to break it down all the way or part way. This will be a convenient way to go to the ocean to fish, even though I just have a Honda Fit to drive it in. Even though this pole is easy to break down and put back together, it is very strong. Look forward to bringing in some big fish in 2016. Merry Christmas, this would make a good present for any occasion.

Fisherman MadBite Multi Function Stainless Steel Fishing Plier Scissors Braid Cutters Review

  • Durable stainless steel body
  • Ultra-sharp blades
  • Easy to carry
  • Comes with a line pick, cutting knife and lure tuning tool
ok, so I used these fishing line cutters three times today. They are easy to use. They actually remind me of nail clippers for fishing line. I also learned to make sure your finger is away from the hook when you use them. I got poked a couple of times, but the cutters worked perfectly. They are very small, but big enough for the guy like me with big hands. Easy to learn how to use. You just clip the line. We had thin line and thick line. Obviously the thin line was easier to cut. This handy little tool will be going with me every time I go fishing now. You can even hook it into your key chain if you want. Great present for any occasion. I like these cutters so much, that you will see them in all the YouTube videos I make when I have to cut fishing line.
You can also order them here on Amazon for that guy that has everything, but this handy little tool.

The Natural Test Against Anxiety

I worked overnight at Amazon for 9 weeks. By the end, we were working eleven hour nights five days a week. I did well as far as the work, but my body did not connect to the overnight shift so well. I would up in the hospital and the Dr. gave me a prescription for Zoloft. I didn't want to try this drug and rely on it, so I decided to give the natural way a try. This is what I will try and I will let you know if it works.

What I Will Take
Vitamin B Complex
St. John's Wort
Lemon Grass Tea
plenty of water
daily walking in the morning for exercise and other types of exercise

What I Will Give Up
Alcohol-I don't drink much and will once in awhile taste a beer, but no more rum or wine to put me to sleep at night
Caffeine-love coffee, but it will have to go
energy drinks in exchange for vitamin B Complex

I will try this way against the anxiety I gained from the night shift and let you know how it works. Hopefully I get things turned around soon.

Three Ways To Get Your Small Business Off The Ground

These days, many small business owners are ready to make their entrepreneurial vision of success a reality. If you run a budding business and want to ensure that the company becomes profoundly successful, know that there are numerous techniques you can use to make it happen. Here are three of them: 

1. Invest In Presentation Optimization Services.

One of the best ways to get your small business growing is by investing in presentation optimization services. When you give an absolutely incredible presentation, you build the value of your brand, impress audiences, boost sales, and improve your sphere of influence. For this reason, it's important that your presentations be optimized for factors like aesthetic appeal, efficacy, and relevance to contemporary audiences. You can put this optimization process in motion by hiring a team of Powerpoint specialists to work on your behalf. Industry professionals such as those at eSlide are highly skilled in providing cutting edge, customized services.

2. Enhance Your Marketing Campaign.

In addition to investing in presentation optimization services, make sure that you enhance your marketing campaign. Marketing is important at all times, but it is especially imperative when you start a new business and are attempting to build a base of loyal clients. Growth hacking is a wonderful marketing mechanism for small business owners to use because it is cost-effective. Through internet advertising measures such as social media optimization and content marketing, you can connect and convert your audience in a manner that helps you enhance conversion and build your brand. 

3. Network (All The Time!)

Although almost every business owner recognizes the power and importance of networking, there are still many leaders who fail to engage in the enterprise on a regular basis. Don't commit this oversight. Instead, get in the habit of regularly attending both informal and formal events that enable you to connect with the individuals who will eventually become your business partners or loyal clients. Some of the networking events you should consider attending include weddings, lectures, conferences, baby showers, block parties, and career fairs. 

Don't Delay-Get Your Small Business Growing Today 

If you just started a business and are ready to watch it grow and flourish, it's time to begin implementing success principles and procedures that will help you realize the vision. To get started, you should consider the value of investing in presentation optimization services, enhancing your marketing platform, and networking regularly!
